No 14 is incorrect as no comma before and

Nancy Palmer-mcguinness, Actually YOU are wrong; that’s the seldom-used Oxford comma, which was the subject of the question.

Gary Mann, The question specifically mentioned the Oxford comma; that is precisely where it belongs. The majority of people simply do not bother to insert it today, and it is falling by the wayside. .

Nancy Palmer-mcguinness, That is the Oxford comma mentioned in the question. Though most people no longer use it, it is still considered proper punctuation.

Raymond Cardona, That comma “before and” IS the Oxford comma. The Oxford (or serial) comma is the final comma in a list of things. It used to be considered standard proper punctuation. However, it is no longer in commonly used.
